My Sunday slow crochet.

I am still working on my UFO project no 4.  The baby shawl.
It is slowly growing. I have finished the centre, which took 3 balls of 3ply Big Baby (Patons). I use this yarn for all my baby projects. Either 3 or 4 ply...
Well I was glad to see the centre done.
The last few centre rounds took 1 hour but they are done

Now I am working on the lacy edge. It seems to be taking forever. I thought 1 hour for a round was slow but this edge is taking me about 3 hours. Of course I have to get up every know and then for a stretch and drink. So it is SLOW going. I need a total of 13 rounds...
Each lacy round takes me 3 hours

I'm linking up with Kathy for Slow Stitching Sunday. Even though it is crochet...
